    Be sure to take care of your alignment sleeves with never seize while you have everything apart. I’m jealous, half the fun is doing the install. :thumbsup:

    You'll like those hangers. A bitch to put on, but they're great

    Thank you! Yours too!

    Will do! I'll probably put together a build thread after the install... I'm really hoping these MRA shocks last the test of time!

    Thanks! I'm stoked I pulled the trigger on them. New Toyota OEM shackle kit will be put in-place of my stock ones, so I can utilize the extra Dobinson bushings and greasable shackle bolt to take advantage of the extra flexibility as mentioned by @ARCHIVE :thumbsup:

    Anyone care to comment on the proper grease for the poly bushings? I'm thinking of using this found over here :notsure: Although, I do have marine grade grease on-hand...

    Yup. For the bushings it's the best. As you know the tackyness is insane. Great stuff.

    Yep, read that too, pretty cool that they power washed bushings covered in the grease options they covered!

    Reminds me of Project Farm kind of a testing/results, as well as our own crashnburn80 lighting threads!

    Yeah, it's a silly test. I'm sure all the reputable greases are somewhat comparable.

    I just have my preference from trying a few and repacking the bushings a couple of times now.

    This came up again today. Very easy way to do the install by not messing with the old bushings on the frame end of the shackle

    @Crikeymike Any idea on when the IMS rears for the 3rd gen Tacomas will be out. I'm fixing to pull the trigger on the IMS fronts with 448 coils and SPC UCA's. Just curious how long I'll have to wait for the IMS rear shocks to match. The MRA's are more than I want to spend, and I don't think I really need the adjustability honestly.
